through, especially today. the fed is pumping action of billions of dollars in the market every month. the same time they're staying low or longer or slower longer which is an inflationary message . liz: again, people still look at that as a safety play, and i don't know if they should. >> because of the deflationary aspect we won't see inflation in the short term. deflationary in the short term. you could see that up to one and a quarter or below one. be careful about getting in front of that. it happens later than sooner. we have to worry about deflationary. liz: i should have been clearer when i said, are they fully yen. what i meant was fully engaged. watching the news flow, reading the new york times and the "wall street journal" to make sure they are on top of the fiscal cliff story. hard to go on vacation. >> absolutely. held in late now. more rhetoric than answers. we need more direction and tangible news so we can go forward. liz: that's higher. people have not even heard mention that it becomes the sort of holiday driving season. people get in the cargo visit their grandpare

if he left behind anything that would explain his actions. but they tell us that there was no note, no letter, unlike some of the past school shootings where the people who committed them did leave detailed writings because they wanted people to know some message. >> and one other detail that struck me, you had a lockdown scenario in the school. he only visits this violence on two of the classrooms. other teachers and the other children were all locked down in their classrooms or other places. >> right. and we don't know why he chose those two classrooms. there was earlier misinformation that he chose the classroom where his mother taught kindergarten. this is something we still haven't nailed down. while it's clear she wasn't a full-time faculty member, there are people that say that at some time she volunteered at that school. >> but no other connection that he had to the school? >> not that we know of. >> thank you, pete, thank you for your reporting. >> you bet. >>> i want to turn now to connecticut governor danell malloy. i am profoundly sorry we are doing this interview this

and statements and bills and hearings, and actions. and hopefully, the momentum will build that you reach a tipping point where -- where it changes. where the number of people that are voting for -- to end gun violence are stronger than those who want to continue the nra policies of always trying to get more guns on the street as opposed >> and i think what we need now -- >> congresswoman maloney, i'm sorry. we are out of time. i want to thank the congresswoman and josh horowitz, both for being with us. >>> that's going to do it here live from connecticut. i'm chris jansing. nbc's coverage continues now. >>> good evening, american, and welcome to "the ed show" from new york. there are tragedies in life that shake our souls and break our hearts. today, the nation experienced one of those tragedies. every american will struggle to come to grip it's with what happened today in a small community in connecticut. sandy hook elementary school and the small community of about 27,000 residents was the site of a shooting rampage. at this hour, we know 26 people at the school were shot and killed by

for american action and what would the action be? >> that's a great point. what we do know from all reports is that there's been a lot of planning going on, in case there is chemical weapons activity in syria, as the assad regime feels more and more pressure from the option. what that would be i don't know. i mean if you just are talking chemical weapons, you can go after delivery vehicles aircraft artillery. you could go after stockpiles. but then there's the danger of course, of releasing chemical weapons into the atmosphere which could harm people as well. you have to be very careful. perhaps boots on the ground. at this point i think that's a long way off. i don't think -- it would take a lot of boots on the ground, i believe. and i don't think that's one of the options that anybody is considering at this point. >> if there is action would it be alone by the united states or with allies? >> ideally, it would be with allies. when you get down to it who has the capability to do the sorts of things that would need to be done? you would hope it would be with allies. with

. john harwood has the details. what's going on? >> not a whole lot of actions going on. although there have been some developments. let me bring our viewers up to date on those. first of all, treasury secretary geithner this afternoon announced the united states would hit the statutory debt limit on monday. that's new year's eve. that's part of an effort to pressure congress to act to raise the debt limit which may or may not be direct limb reply indicated in the fiscal cliff talks but it is relevant to the larger issue of debt and deficits. the treasury can move money around in certain ways to extend the point where we actually reach a crisis for probably a couple of months. but this is an early warning sign. secondly, republicans in the house sent word to democrats in the senate, white house, it is your turn now. we acted to put off the fiscal cliff several months ago with a bill that without objection tend all of those bush tax rates into the future and would turn off the sequester by switching defense cuts over to domestic programs. democrats, of course have no intention of d
together and take meaningful action to prevent more tragedies like this, regardless of the politics. >> as much as we think of this issue as a political untouchable, not the tragedy itself, but policy to prevent yet another tragedy like this. as much as we think of this as a subject that cannot be discussed in washington, president obama has spoken to this issue before today. he has been called to speak to it mostly in response to tragedies like today. but when you look at his remarks combined over time in full, it's just a remarkable chronicle of not just what he has said. what he said must be done. but it is a remarkable chronicle of what has not yet been done. >> it is part of our nature to demand explanations, to try to impose some order on the chaos, to make sense out of that which seems senseless. already we've seen the national conversation commence, not only about the motivations behind these killings, but about everything from the merits of gun safety laws to the adequacy of our mental health system. and much -- much of this process of debating what might be done to prevent

of the housing market. while they have already taken action to pretext the financial mortgage fund for single family loans from seeking federal funds, the f.y. 2012 report suggests that much more needs to be done to prevent such a draw. i want to hear more today about the administration's actions and proposals to minimize the risk to taxpayers stemming from their business and what safeguards are in place to ensure the quality and sustainability of the program. if the administration's actions and proposals will not be sufficient to restore f.h.a.'s fiscal health, i'm inclined to work with my colleagues on both sides of the aisle on the banking committee to find a bipartisan way to make shoo -- that happen. before i turn to ranking member shelby, i want to recognize his work as ranking member on this committee over the past six years. this may be our last hearing together this year, and we will have no ranking member next year. i'm part of our bipartisan record over the last two years we continued it the tradition of bipartisanship that this committee has been known for by passing signature bil
entitled "amtrak management systemic problems require actions to improve efficiency effectiveness, accountability" that was the name of the report, i was asked by then ranking member oberstar to serve as the lead democrat on the special working group convened by this committee to evaluate that report's findings and make recommendations on subsequent action. certainly amtrak was facing challenges at that time, but among other observations, the democratic members of the working group noted in our view that amtrak, quote, faces difficulties in implementing long range strategic plans because of great uncertainty regarding its federal funding each year, end of quote. during that era, amtrak faced repeated proposals to cut or eliminate the federal funding provided to it. obviously that made it difficult for amtrak's leadership to focus solely on operating the company or on developing long-term goals and performance benchmarks. we hear a lot in the congress about uncertainty. so subsequently, under chairman oberstar's leadership, congress enacted the passenger rail investment improvement

decisions in their ability to say you know what? i have to be responsible for my actions and these are not beavers i can do. couscous of the response of the adults that are supposed to be their helping the kids, protecting them, respecting them is critical isn't it to what happens to these kids. i think we will take a quick break now and come back and talk more about some of the solutions to the problem. this is -- bullying is probably easier to spot than it is to fix and i think that if we don't take a comprehensive approach sometimes we can make things worse and our kids are too precious, aren't they? okay so we will take a break now and we will be right back. >> host: let's talk a little bit more about school resource officers and safety officers. >> guest: i think they play an important role when they start to escalate into situations where you have text messaging, where it is happening over on facebook or where it is involving more serious incidents of physical assault. one thing i think parents find is when they have tried to resolve a situation through the school o

the topic sentence. i think this was the most telling, action-oriented piece of what the president said last night up in connecticut. let's listen to it now. >> in the coming weeks, i will use whatever power this office holds to engage my fellow citizens from law enforcement to mental health professionals to parents and educators in an effort aimed at preventing more tragedies like this. because what choice do we have? we can't accept events like this as routine. are we really prepared to say that we're powerless in the face of such carnage? that the politics are too hard? are we prepared to say that such violence visited on our children year after year after year is somehow the price of our freedom? >> chuck todd, you know, gun control was probably not in many politicians' songbook going into this coming year, but now it is. reality, reality checks, reality bites. do you think the president has given any sign he will do something about gun safety in this next term? >> well, if he wants to -- that speech was a powerful speech, it was galvanizing, it was remorseful, it mourned those precious

security establishments, our business communities all know this is rear. there is a rear-guard action in this building led by polluters to keep us from taking action on this. we have to face the fact that the deniers are wrong. just plain dead wrong. >> jennifer: that is the incredible senator sheldon white whitehouse unloading on his colleagues at a senate hearing. exactly who is he talking to? take senator gyms inhofe. he's with the senate committee of environment and public works. that senator, senator inhofe has referred to global chime change change as an alarmist. why would he say that? maybe because the top three contributers to his political campaign for the top five years are some of the top fossil fuel industries in the campaign. koch industries, murray energy. devon energy. is there any chance that reason can speak louder than money? here to help us answer that question is jefferey sachs. he's comeing to us via skype from new york. thank you for joining us in "the war room"." >> thanks for having me again. it's great to be with you. 12,347 >> jennifer: i appreciate your p
